Why do people pray to saints?

There is no foundation in the Bible to support the Catholic concept and practice of praying to saints. The Bible is clear that all of God’s children are saints, so in effect one could pray to oneself but what good would that do? If we are being conformed to the image of Christ we ought to pray to who He prayed to, the Heavenly Father.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
Romans 8:29 & 30

“This, then, is how you should pray:

” `Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. ‘
Matthew 6:9-13

They made me jealous by what is no god
and angered me with their worthless idols.
Deuteronomy 32:21

“I am the LORD; that is my name!
I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.
Isaiah 42:8
